    How old is this old blacktail?

    Got this guy this week, 4x2 blacktail. Pretty stoked cause I passed on a spiker in the morning and ate tag soup when it came to blacktails last year.
    So how old do you think he is? Has he regressed from his best days? Having no brow tines, does it mean anything?
    Included are pics of his teeth which are pretty warn down so I figured he is up there in age.

    Nice buck! Impossible to tell the age without actually aging the teeth, but it has nice thick bases and a Roman nose. Great old warrior!

    Beauty buck! Do they still do the “tooth for the truth” program, or did that get gutted as well?
